Personally, I can't believe people who don't absolutely love POP. But that's me.

Believe it or not, some of us actually LIKE POP. Actually, I would list it among my favorite U2 albums. It's a matter of opinion, I guess.

I disagree (about 9-s being bad for music). I think the 90s were a great time for music if you were musically diverse. I was 23-32 in the 90s and very much into music. Here are some of my favorites that still hold up for me...

Achtung Baby - U2

Viloator - Depeche Mode
Nevermind - Nirvana
I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got - Sinead O'Connor

Ava Adore - Smashing Pumpkins
The Miseducatuion of Lauryn Hill - Lauryn Hill
August and Everything After - Counting Crows
All Shook Down - The Replacements
Throwing Copper - Live
New Adventures in Hi-Fi - R.E.M.
Sheryl Crow - Sheryl Crow (her awesome self-produced 2nd album)
Real Life - Simple Minds
Vs - Pearl Jam
Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness - Smashing Pumpkins
Jagged Little Pill - Alanis Morissete
Pop-U2
Zooropa - U2
Vitalogy - Pearl Jam
Our Time in Eden - 10,000 Maniacs
Dangerous - Michael Jackson (his last great work)
Pablo Honey - Radiohead
Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers
What's the Story Morning Glory- Oasis
The Globe Sessions _ Sheryl Crow
Pet Your Friends - Dishwalla
Fear - Toad the Wet Sprocket
No Need to Argue - The Cranberries
Garbage (the first and best one)
Erotica - Madonna
Godfodder - Ned's Atomic Dustbin
Cake - The Trashcan Sinatras

I thought you had a good list, but with albums like Passengers on a best of the decade list? Is was a pretty weak album overall.
